Welcome to the stupidity of my mind!

Welcome to Ty’s Blog! This is a place where Ty Harvey publishes random self-written articles about virtually everything that crosses his mind.

GIGABYTE Aero 15X V8-BK4 Review

Is the Gigabyte Aero 15X worth it? Find out in my review rundown!

Opinionated Opinions of an Uneducated Individual Gentleman

This blog of mine is something of an unusual place, where I can attempt to express myself without worrying about having thousands or millions of people reading my words. You see, no one but my cat knows that this blog even exists, and even my cat (being the demonic she-devil that she is) doesn’t give […]

How to get free review copies of games and become a game reviewer

Hey there, so you’re looking to become a game reviewer, huh? Good choice! I’ve been writing for the game industry for nearly ten years now, and while the job can at times get very hard and tedious, it can also be very rewarding and fun. Hopefully this article acts as a guide of sorts for […]

These four walls of despair

Death is something that’s constantly plaguing the back of my twisted little mind. It’s there, stinking up the joint, and acting as a constant reminder of my past mistakes and endless transgressions. I’ve done things that I’m not proud of, and I unfortunately now find myself standing upon the ledge of truth and dishonesty. You […]

*sigh* Windows 10 Creators Update is total shit

Microsoft, you’ve successfully managed to once again fuck up my computer with your corrupted operating system. Thanks for that, you jerks! D: The Creators Update was pushed to me, and I had no choice but to install it. Let me tell you, it’s trash. Total and complete fucking trash. This thing? Yeah, it lowers game […]

I’m still alive, I think?

Sorry for the crap activity on this blog lately, but I mean, can you blame me? I’m the only human reading this thing, with the other lifeform being my ungrateful bastard of a feline companion. (aka cat)

This is how I broke my lefterior anklieous

Okay, so this isn’t really an article. I’m just writing this out of boredom, and lack of sleep. Figured I’d do a sort of experiment to see how many other bored users of Le Reddit are Googling lefterior anklieous. So, yeah. If you’re from reddit, hi… Now piss off, and go back to Reddit. My blog […]

I’ve been on a space binge

Alright, so here’s the thing, yeah? Space is freaking huge. I mean, you probably knew that already, but just in case you’re an idiot, I figured I’d mention it anyway. Space has always fascinated the absolute crap out of me. I mean, dude? Most of the stars we see floating in the sky? Yeah, they’re […]

Nintendo Won’t Exist In Ten Years, Unless Some Changes Are Made Now

(article was originally scheduled to publish on Jul 16th, but in the wake of Satoru Iwata’s untimely death, the publication was delayed)   It seems like Nintendo is always doomed, with analysts predicting time and time again that the last Nintendo console, was the last Nintendo console. Every single time, Nintendo proved them wrong. Analysts would then leave Nintendo alone […]

Information on giveaways (first comment gets a game)

I’ve been super busy with stuff, and haven’t had any time to post here. Do you have it in your heart to forgive me? 🙂 So anyway, giveaways. That’s pretty much all this here blog thing is for, since pretty much all of you are here for the free loot. So, you should be happy […]

Remembering OnLive – One Year Later

OnLive was a revolutionary technology, that provided cloud video gaming services to anyone, on any device. Because OnLive streamed all of your games over a broadband internet connection, gamers were able to play even the most graphically demanding games, on pretty much any computer. If your computer was capable of streaming 720p HD video, you could […]

Okay, this shit has got to stop, Microsoft!

Now, if you’ve read any of my previous articles on the matter, you’ll know that I am not a fan of Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 10. This thing has been so insanely bad, it even got me to switch on over to Ubuntu Linux, at least for a little while. However, you may have also […]

Random Giveaway: March 2016

Alright, so here’s the thing, yeah? Instead of giving away a predetermined game, like I’ve been doing since 2013, I’ve decided to instead give away a totally random game from a pool. To enter, simply leave a comment on this article.  Terms & Conditions Please read these terms and conditions carefully, as failure to do […]

PlayStation 4 kinda sucks

Seriously, this little unit doesn’t have much going for it right about now. Clear lack of must have software aside, the PS4 is just a finicky and highly temperamental unit. Like, earlier today, my power happened to flicker for less than a second. My Xbox One and Wii U weren’t affected by this, which I’m […]

Like Games? Check Out Gaming Rant

Gaming Rant, for those of you that may be unfamiliar with my history, is a website that I’ve been operating for over six years. This blog wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for Gaming Rant’s success, since I created this blog as a secondary means to write content not particularly related to the video game industry. […]

An Xbox Live Rant, By a Long Time Gold Member

If you’re not up to date, Xbox Live on the Xbox One has been having some serious issues over the last couple of days, and up until now, it never really affected me. Sure, I wasn’t able to socialize with my online buddies, but at least I could still play my downloaded video games, albeit […]

I get $1 per month on ad revenue

Currently, I’m making huge bucks with this here blog thingy. On average, I make roughly $1 each and every month, all via advertisements! I mean, how cool is that, huh? 😀 Seriously, AdSense is great, if you’re getting 50,000 hits or more per month. Otherwise, it’s just not worth it. I could very well remove […]

Upcoming changes to newsletter

If you’re currently subscribed to my email newsletter, you’ll receive instant notifications whenever a new article is published. Unfortunately, this also means that my more nonsensical articles are sent directly to your inbox, and depending on my mood, there could be multiple articles every couple of minutes. This is all ell and good, but it […]

You should buy Firewatch

Firewatch is an absolutely brilliant video game, and while I am currently writing up a review, I simply couldn’t wait to praise this wonderful work of art. If you haven’t already, you need to pick this up. While the game isn’t perfect, which I’ll touch on in my upcoming review, it’s by far the best […]

Giving Away Games on Twitch

Hey guys, check out my (currently live) Twitch broadcast! I’ve already given away one game. Who will the next one go to? 😀 twitch.tv/sidular

Random Flash Giveaway

The first person to comment will receive a free random video game. Pretty snazzy, right?

Random Giveaway [February 2016]

Alright, so here’s the thing, yeah? Instead of giving away a predetermined game, like I’ve been doing since 2013, I’ve decided to instead give away a totally random game from a pool. To enter, simply leave a comment on this article.    Terms & Conditions Please read these terms and conditions carefully, as failure to […]

I think I’m falling in love with myself. Does that make me tysexual?

Dear Random Individual

If you’re a video game developer, and would like to have your game played by the awesomeness that is Ty, please get in contact with me. I’d be willing to freely promote your game both on this here blog thingy,  as well as in video recordings and/or live streaming. Any blog articles I write of […]

This needs to be optimized…

Alright, so my blog is in desperate need of optimization, thanks to the recent template changes that I oh so wisely made. Currently, everything appears to be very slow. At least, it seems to be on my end. What are your experiences with loading my blog? Is it just as fast as usual, or is […]

Just testing a new design thingy

  I‘ve gone ahead and modified the site design, for no particular reason whatsoever.  Consider the new design to be some type of beta thing, since I’m going to continue to modify it until I’ve got everything just right. I’m also noticing a few bugs that may need to be squashed, so there’s that, too. […]

Future of giveaways on this blog (first two comments get a free game)

I know a fair number of my readers are mostly here for the free loot. I also know that you’ve long since forsaken me, given the lack of free loot in recent times. See, free loot ain’t free for me, since I gotta pay for it out of my own pocket. Sadly, I’m poor, and […]

Changes to blog structure

Alright, so here’s the deal. I’m short on time as of late, and haven’t had the opportunity to sit down and write a personal article for this here blog thing. Sadly, I’ve also lost some of my original journalistic inspiration. So, motivation plays a key part to my inactivity on here as well. Originally, this […]

Sometimes, I hate working

Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. However, sometimes shit breaks, and I have to fix it. Over the last two weeks, so basically all of 2016 so far, I’ve been working day and night to fix something. I swear, my brain feels like it’s about to explode, and yet… oddly, I love every […]

Why I stopped using Windows 10, and started using Ubuntu

Oh dear, it’s finally come to this, has it? I never thought that this would ever happen, to be entirely honest with you. Sure, I joked around every once in awhile, but I never thought I’d actually jump ship to another operating system. Yet, the problems I’ve been facing with my retail version of Windows 10… […]

Here’s a Rogue Legacy Review

To play, or not to play. That's what I seek to answer. Ty Reviews is a new segment where I write a general review without giving too much away.  Rogue Legacy is far from your typical video game. Sure, you've got a randomly generated castle to explore, as well as a bunch of unique enemies to [...]

Site design; changes?

I’m probably going to end up changing things around a bit, as the theme I was once using is apparently no longer being supported by its designers.

Information on the monthly giveaways

I will no longer be giving away video games on a monthly basis, as made pretty obvious by the lack of, you know, giveaways. Instead, I’m looking to work with select developers and publishers, in the hopes that they’d be willing to donate a key or two for one of their video games. Ultimately, it […]

Qwerty derp

Okay so this is just a quick post. Basically, I hate it when virtual keyboards, whether it’s data entry in some type of video game, or a default keyboard style for a major video game console, are alphabetical and not qwerty. I mean, how hard can it be to include a qwerty keyboard for data […]

Android broken?

Since upgrading my phone to the latest version of Android, everything has been super slow, and my phone has been getting extremely warm. Currently sits at 43.1 Celsius. Also, WiFi keeps crashing, and occasionally my phone will do a full restart for seemingly no reason. It just turns off and back on by itself. I […]

Dear PlayStation: This is why I hate you

Warning: this article contains poorly written journalism, opinions that may differ from your own, and strong feelings. Read at your own risk! If you know anything at all about me, or if you've read any of my previous articles, you're likely more than aware of just how much I love playing video games. Hell, I [...]

Antimagnetism: Finding the Opposite Force

Magnetism is a natural force within the universe, separate from gravity, though in a similar category. Magnetism has both a negative and a positive value, or so we currently believe. But what if magnetism acts as a single force, and that this ability to push or pull depending on side is nothing but a single […]

Why don’t we have a Hamster Simulator?

Goats, toast, octopuses, rats. It seems like everything nowadays has some type of simulation game to go along with it. So, why the hell hasn’t anyone made a Hamster Simulator? Seriously, I really don’t get it. With how insanely popular the other simulators are, why hasn’t anyone ever considered making a hamster simulator? I’d make […]

Look at these pizza lovin’ cats 😀

I got bored, so enjoy these pizza cats.  

A Random Moon: Rainbow of Light

If you look high up into the sky at this very moment, just as I am doing right now, you will see what is commonly referred to as a super moon. If you were among the lucky few, you’ll have noticed a slight tinge of red covering the moon, almost like a sea of crimson […]

Another “Windows 10 Sucks” Article

Hello, you miss me? Didn’t think so. But I don’t care. I’m too annoyed to care. Know why? Because Windows 10 is a horrible operating system. I’ve tried to be relatively subjective, but no; it’s the worst operating system I have ever used. It requires daily restarts to work. Oh, and I’m fairly certain that […]

Windows 10 Review: By a Non-American

If you've read my last article, you'll know that I am not happy with Windows 10. In fact, I still strongly stand behind my original statement of Windows 10 being the worst operating system I have ever used, if not the worst of all time. Yes, that means it's even worse than Vista, which is quite an amazing [...]

Windows 10 is a broken, buggy, mess!

Windows 10 is the second worst operating system I have ever used. I’d even go as far as to say that Windows 10, in its current form, is barely a hair above Vista. Let’s face it, nothing can be worse than Vista, and yet, Windows 10 is the closest thing to it.   On one […]

If I were Nintendo’s CMO, I’d be fired in a day

This is why I would never make it as Chief Marketing Officer for Nintendo. Me: “Hey Nintendo, if you sign on with FIFA, and push the TVii service in Europe, you could see anywhere from 10 million to 100 million sales in Europe alone.” Nintendo: “Yes, but what about the games?” Me: “Well, with the added […]

How to create a website in under twenty minutes

Having your own website is something of a social status within today’s society. Whether it’s a blog, like this one, or some kind of professional storefront for your online business. Everyone, no matter age nor gender, should be able to easily create and manage a website.  That’s why I’ve written out this easy to follow guide. This whole process […]

If you have PlanetSide 2 on PC, don’t bother with PS4

PlanetSide 2 is arguably one of my all time favourite games on PC, and for good reason. It has vehicle combat, awesomely epic gun battles, and literally thousands of players to shoot at. When Sony Online Entertainment (now known as Daybreak Studios) first announced that their hallmark FPS title was heading to the PS4, I was […]

Rogue Legacy Giveaway Winner [May 2015]

Congratulations to Tyler on winning a totally free and awesome copy of Rogue Legacy via Steam, provided by Cellar Door Games! I hope you enjoy your copy of Rogue Legacy! Seriously, the game is pretty amazing. 😀 I’ve gone ahead and contacted you on Steam.

Splatoon Miiverse – Hacked?

The Splatoon Pre-launch community is supposed to be restricted only to Nintendo’s Tom and Amy, so why is it that a seemingly random individual was able to post to this private community without Nintendo’s knowledge of consent? Well, the answer is actually quite simple, and involves what could be a mere misunderstanding, rather than a […]

Hands On with the Nintendo NX

PlayStation and Xbox both have their own unique controllers, but over the last twenty years, they’ve remained mostly the same in design. Sure, the DualShock 4 received a fairly major overhaul with the introduction of the PlayStation 4 in 2013, but it’s still using the same general shape, button layout, and design that they’ve been […]

PlayStation Now Doesn’t Suck!

Now, I could complain about the price and lack of content, or I could bitch about the PlayStation device requirement… But God damn, it works. It actually works, Wilma! Ain’t that a charm? PlayStation Now is expensive, sure. It doesn’t offer much value for the high price tag. It doesn’t even offer multiple payment terms, […]

May 2015 Giveaway – Rogue Legacy (via Steam)

[laborator_supercaption el_position="first"]Rogue Legacy Giveaway![/laborator_supercaption] This month, I'm giving away the highly acclaimed indie rogue-lite platformer, Rogue Legacy! Personally, Rogue Legacy is by far one of my all-time favourite video games, right up there with the original Super Mario Brothers. So, it's an absolute pleasure to be able to give this wonderful indie gem away to one lucky [...]

Five Nights at Freddy’s Giveaway Winner [April 2015]

Congratulations to stelian for winning the complete Five Nights at Freddy’s series via Ty’s Blog! I’ve sent you a friend request on Steam. Once accepted, I’ll be able to send you your three awesome games. 😀   Remember to keep an eye out for May’s giveaway announcement.

Winner announcement delayed… Again.

Sorry guys, my computer is still unavailable, and it looks like it might remain that way for another ten hours. So, I’m delaying the giveaway winner announcement until tomorrow May 3rd.

Yup, still got computer problems…

This is really starting to annoy me. Anyway, the giveaway winner will in fact be announced today. Just as soon as I’m finished running a preboot system assessment. Oh, and expect a new giveaway announcement shortly, too.

Giveaway winner…

Will be selected tomorrow! Heh, yeah. Sorry guys, but my computer decided to crash, so I’m doing extensive maintenance today. Figured I’d be done by now, but it’s taking longer than I expected. In the mean time, I’ve been playing some Bloodborne. Pretty sweet game. Highly recommend checking it out. Oh, and yes. The featured […]

Doing some computer maintenance

Hey guys, I’m writing from the WordPress app right now, as I’m doing some maintenance on my computer. I’m running a CHKDSK on my hard disk drive, and it may take a while. Once it’s done, I’ll announce the April giveaway, winner. Wish me luck!

Steam + Mods = No

As most of you are likely already aware, Valve’s Steam service is now allowing the sale of user created modifications for select Steam Workshop titles. Currently, this is limited to just Skyrim, though the list is expected to expand as time moves on, and more developers / publishers join the fray. Of course, this created […]

So, EA Access is actually good… Surprising, right?

They are Electronic Arts. They’ve been around since the very beginning of the industry. They were here before the Nintendo Entertainment System. They saw the video game industry crash in 1983, and they did what Atari couldn’t; they survived and prospered. Today, they publish some of the top video game franchises of all time. The Sims, […]

Happy Holidays!

Yes, I’m a holiday. You all have today off, in celebration of my birthday. Congrats, you cowards. So go, drink until you’re sober. You’ve earned it.   ps. today I am 22.

Bloodborne is… fantastic?

I have mixed feelings, to be entirely honest with you. On one hand, the game looks visually fantastic. I just love the gothic atmosphere, and the enemy design is amazing. The difficulty is something that I’m currently uncertain about. Now, I’ll admit that the game is hard, and if you’re outnumbered by enemies, odds are […]

April 2015 Giveaway – Five Nights at Freddy’s Series (via Steam) [closed]

[laborator_supercaption el_position="first"]Five Night at Freddy's Franchise Giveaway![/laborator_supercaption] I'm going to change things up a bit. Rather than giving away a single game, I'm giving away the entire Five Nights at Freddy's franchise! That's three games, one winner.   Before you mindlessly enter, please be sure to read the below terms and conditions.   Provided By Ty [...]

I Hate That I Was Right – Goodbye OnLive

Back in 2014, I wrote an opinion piece about OnLive, where I ultimately said that they were going to fail. This article got me quite a bit of hate over at the OnLive forums, and one of their high ranking administrators ended up falsely banning me, being under the assumption that I originally posted my […]

Spotify Sucks, Goodbye PlayStation Music!

Spotify is a broken service that shouldn’t even be around, and that’s especially true on the PlayStation 4. On the computer, it seems to be fairly decent. You search for an album, add it to your music collection, and you’re ready to listen. Sure, Rdio does it better, but Spotify is a good enough match […]

Battlefield: Hardline – My Thoughts

No, this isn’t a rage article. I’m not going to mention the oh so many faults that the latest Battlefield entry has, such as the lack of classic game modes, and an outdated and poorly optimized game engine. Also, this isn’t a review, even though I do technically give it a score later on. This […]

This blog is meh

So, I just don’t know what to do with this blog thingy. On one hand, I enjoy writing nonsense, while on the other, no one seems to be willing to read my nonsense. I’d love to be able to somehow get hundreds of readers, though I seriously doubt that’s going to happen. The giveaways I […]

Sony’s Music Unlimited Discontinued – Becomes Spotify?

So yeah, it seems as though Sony’s wonderful Music Unlimited service, which was required if you wanted to play music on the PlayStation 4, is closing down as of March 29th. According to Sony, they’re going to introduce an entirely new music service, which just so happens to be called Spotify. Now, Music Unlimited was rarely […]

Thank You Rdio – You’re Awesome

Three years ago today, Rdio changed my music life forever. I’ve happily listened to tens of thousands of songs, and have hundreds of albums in my Collection. I’ve rediscovered classic tunes from my childhood, and have expanded my music listening habit into a full-on addiction. Rdio allowed me to listen to not only great music, but […]

Dear EA: This Level of “Support” Is Unacceptable!

Alright, so Electronic Arts. You know who they are, and you know the horror stories. Personally, I’ve actually had some fairly decent live support chats with them in the past, but I now officially understand why everyone continues to rate EA as the worst company in America. I mean, really? This level of support is […]

Just a little rant about something that won’t interest you

Now, tell me if this feels fair to you. When the PlayStation Network was taken down over the holidays, Sony ended up giving out a free five day PS Plus extension to everyone affected, as well as a 10% off discount for any PS Store purchase made between January 23rd, and January 26th. That’s a […]

Listen up, boys and girls. I’m going to teach you a little something about kitty sexuality

When a girl finds another girl sexually attractive, she’s a lesbian. When the lesbian meets another lesbian, it is customary to engage in various mating rituals, until both are satisfied with their newfound partner. They then proceed to have sexy fun times with each other in an intimate nature. This is normal. What is not normal, is […]

This is what boredom does to an otherwise insane mind

This entire post shouldn’t exist, and yet it does. I really don’t know why I’m writing an obviously idiotic post about nothing at all… perhaps I’m just insane, and the boredom of being awake at 4 o’clock in the morning has driven me to write my insanity down onto a virtual paper, taking the form […]

Blog Maintenance

But no one cares about that, right? Anyway, the blog will be in maintenance mode for a few hours later in the evening.

So, regarding the giveaways?

Specifically the giveaway that has yet to be, you know, given away?  Yeah, I was just wondering what you guys thought of that? I mean, there’s already a damn sequel to that game, so should I even bother with the giveaway at this point? Or perhaps I should just move on, and start giving out […]

PlayStation Now Subscription Plan? Uh, no thanks.

Today, Sony announced that their PlayStation Now cloud streaming service would be available for $19.99 a month,and would include 100 PS3 games at launch. The service will only be accessible on the PlayStation 4, with more devices being added in the near future, including the PlayStation Vita. While I have no doubt that PlayStation Now’s […]

Rogue Legacy is super-duper-freaking-awesomazing!

While most video game development studios design games because of their love for the video game industry, Cellar Door Games is different. They don’t care about the industry, or the awesome art of pixels and polygons. No,they have different priorities. Cellar Door Games wants you to rage your freaking butt off, which is why they […]

Controller Battle: PS4 vs XOne vs Wii U vs OnLive

Among the hundreds if not thousands of articles, you’ve managed to stumble upon this little piece of editorial paradise. A part of me feels sorry for your obviously horrible luck, while the other part wishes you’re crazy enough to stick around, and read this article in full. I won’t judge you if you were to […]

If you’re Canadian, do NOT use Cogeco as your ISP

It’s common belief that I am an awesome (if not a tad egotistical) individual. It’s also common fact that I am, without a doubt, the most awesomest of all awesomes. That’s just the way things are. So, when I tell you that Cogeco is an Internet Service Provider that should be avoided, you should take […]

Android 5.0 Sucks

I’m typing this entire article on a fully updated Nexus 5. That is, I’m running the latest version of Android, and have been using it for several days like the good guinea pig that I am. Honestly, I hate essentially being the beta tester for a firmware update, as this version of Android broke more […]

This blog has literally no logical or perhaps even illogical reason to exist within the digital realms of the internet. Also, apparently the title for this very article is quite long. Not sure why it’s so long, but it is. Perhaps I’m just bored? Yes, I’m bored. That must be it.

I seriously question the sanity of those that read this blog, myself included. I mean, there’s only like, five or so people reading this blog, and they are all (probably) clinically insane. Either I am truly that entertaining to read, or people are just fucking bored. Either way, you’re generating me ad revenue, and I thank you for […]

Status: Bored and Cold

Okay, so it’s winter. Yes, that means shit gets cold, and in turn, it also means I get cold. Which sucks, because being cold means I’m no longer warm, which also means I need to wear heavier clothing to stay warm, which means I end up wearing more clothes, which means I end up looking […]

Fanboys and Elitism

This blog is essentially dead, so I no longer have to censor myself. Though, even if the blog were not dead, I honestly doubt I’d care about censoring anything. I’m now at that point where I stopped giving a fuck, and am now questioning why humanity as a whole managed to survive beyond the dark […]

PlayStation Network Rant

I would like to start this post off by saying sorry. I won’t hold myself back, as this has been bothering me for months. Now, I know I’ve lost most of my readers, so I won’t even bother pretending to entertain you with my wonderful wits and sense of humour. Quite simply, I’m too damn […]

Site Updates Coming Soon

First off, I’d like to apologize for my inactivity since October. I’ve also yet to announce the giveaway winner, and I’m sorry for that, too. My blog has been an absolute mess thanks to WordPress updating. The theme I’m currently using is no longer supported, which sucks because this template is pretty damn awesome.   […]

ShortStory: Perfect Rebirth

Why do I live, when I am nothing more than an insignificant form of life. Broken. Twisted. Demented. Why do I breath the unforgiving air that surrounds me, when I know that the sour scent of my own burning desires is all that I would ever inhale. It’s as if god is punishing me for […]

Human Medium: Electric Earth – Part 2

The blue bolt of spiritual lightning bounced over my stretched out hand, and made its way up my arm and into my body. Although the bolt took less then a second to pass through me, the emotional reaction to my internal spirit seemed to never have an end. The lightning bolt has collected the emotions […]

September 2014 Giveaway – Five Nights at Freddy’s (via Steam)

[laborator_supercaption el_position="first"] Five Night at Freddy's Giveaway! [/laborator_supercaption] Hey guys, sorry about the week-long delay. Unfortunately, this is going to be my last monthly giveaway. Don't worry though, I'm still going to give stuff out, just not on a monthly basis anymore. I may also start giving out subscriptions to services like OnLive, or a few [...]

OnLive – Yet Another Article

Alright, I know some of you guys are sick of me talking about the OnLive game service. Hell, I’ve been fairly negative towards it, and have a bit of a reputation within the OnLive community as being some type of low-life loser. (someone even tried to get me banned by pretending to be me, so there’s […]

DayZ Giveaway Winner [August 2014 Giveaway]

Alright, so here’s the deal. I couldn’t afford to purchase the game, so instead, I’m giving away a free copy of….   Kidding. I’d never do that to you guys. 🙂   Anyway, the winner this time around is Dakari! So yeah, congratulations, and such. 😀

The Random Button

Interested in reading my totally awesome articles? Heh, what a silly question, for it is I, the wonderful Ty, that wrote them! So, of course you’re interested! (plus, some of them contain hamsters) So, that’s why I created a page that automatically pulls up a random article from my blog. Pretty awesome, right? Yeah, I know it […]

August 2014 Giveaway – DayZ (via Steam)

[laborator_supercaption el_position="first"] DayZ Giveaway! [/laborator_supercaption] Hey guys, sorry for taking so damn long to get this article published. I was working on a sponsorship with a third party, and it never really played out. I was also trying to decide what I'd give away this month. If you're not yet aware, I intend to give away [...]

I’m Being Haunted By My Dead Cat

Congratulations afterlife, you’ve found yourself a new guinea pig for your brand new demonic kitty!   Callisto, my lovable kitty cat, is haunting me. She recently appeared beside my resting body, and licked my face with her razor-sharp ghost tongue. I gave her some catnip, and although she couldn’t figure out why her ghost mouth […]

Spintires Giveaway Winner [July 2014 Giveaway]

Oops! I’m a tad late to announce the winner this time around, and I apologize for that! I’ve been busy, killing cats and eating bubblegum. Better late than never though, right?   Anyway, congratulations to NinjaNick for winning the Ty’s Blog Spintires Giveaway!

So, if you are interested in winning free stuff, please subscribe to my online [...]

Seriously, Don’t Buy The Pulse Elite!

Sony’s Pulse Elite headset offers a truly fantastic sound experience, and rivals most Turtle Beach headsets available at a similar price range. However,  unlike Turtle Beach, the Pulse Elite is made like a piece of shit,  and suffers from a massive defect, one that quite literally makes the headset useless after a couple of months […]

The future of gaming is sad, lonely and bleak

While I don’t care to admit it, I am seriously beginning to question my love for the video game industry. Everywhere I look, I see massive disappointments. Take Watchdogs as one example. That game was hyped up beyond what any normal video game should be, and it failed to deliver on its’ promises. Sure, I […]

Who the hell is ‘Ty Harvey’ anyways?

Ty’s Quote of the Day

Life is but a nightmare, wrapped tightly by ones own twisted desires. The only help for which you can seek does not come from a doctor or a priest, for there is no religion or remedy known to this green Earth capable of providing you with true happiness. The cure lies somewhere else, somewhere deep […]

I’m No Longer OnLive’s #1 Fan (OnLive’s going to fail…again)

While it pains me to write this, I feel as though I must speak up. OnLive used to fill me with optimistic glee for the future of gaming.

Family Business – Chapter 1

“Suit up” I said to my daughter, “It’s raining cats and dogs outside”. “Come on mom, we’re gonna be late!” my daughter called from the doorway. It’s her first day of school, and she’s pretty excited. “Just let me get my keys, do you remember where I put them?” I asked my daughter, who was […]

PS4 Price Increase – Math Has Been Done! (Sony’s being unethical)

In regards to the previously published entry, I just did the math. See, the price is being increased due to the value of the Canadian dollar falling. However, things just don’t seem to add up, and Sony is essentially making free money with every sale of PS4 games, systems and accessories. Games originally priced at […]

Sony’s Officially On My Naughty List!

Thanks to Sony, and the supposed decline of the Canadian economy, pretty much everything PS4 related is getting a price increase. The PS4 itself is going up $50. Everything else, including games and accessories like the Camera and DualShock 4 controller, is being increased by $5. So, games are now $64.99 instead of $59.99. Because […]

Gaming Is No Longer A Form of Art!

Human Medium Mini – Home Is Where The Heart Is

Before the war of 1812, this small town was a very popular tourist destination. People would travel from all across the country on horseback to stay at the newly established William Hotel and Resort.

[PS4] The Order: 1886 Review Score Predictions

Before I start this off, you should know that I am nothing more than a measly video game developer with intermediate experience in business management. So, the odds of my below predictions proving to be accurate are slim to none…

Feelings… Oh How I Hate Them!

As I sit here, awake in my bed, I can’t help but to wonder the point of my existence. Honestly, I’ve been feeling like an illusion as of late, as if stuck between the line of what is real, and what is fake. Like a never ending dream that is constantly verging on a nightmare, […]

OnLive… Are They Still Significant?

Cloud gaming is nothing new, and has been around for nearly a decade. However, the recent cloud gaming advancements and usage concepts were completely pioneered by OnLive, which was announced at the Game Developers Conference  in 2009. OnLive officially launched to the continental United States on  June 10th, 2010, roughly four years before the announcement of […]

Why you shouldn’t buy the Tango PC – and better yet, why you should

The Tango PC is said to be the worlds most powerful micro computer, that can easily play all of the latest and greatest video games, office programs and practically anything else that Windows 7, Windows 8 and Linux can natively run. Let me just set things straight. The Tango PC does not have the power to […]

Burning Tears of Hell

The twisted senses of time and reality have taken a hold of my insanity. Screaming out to an emotionless crowd of death and decay. Crying the burning tears of hell.

Science… And The Paranormal/Supernatural?

“Show me a scientist who says spirits are real.” Scientists believe in data, and expand upon their research and knowledge by using this data to gain a better understanding as to how everything ‘works’. A scientist is a general term, and can be applied to a wide range of professions, and is not limited to […]

Human Medium: Electric Earth – Part 1

Oh Golly, Isn’t Android Swell? 🙁

Android, the mobile operating system owned and distributed by Google, is by far the most buggy OS I have ever used. I’d even go as far as to say that the latest version of Android, 4.4 KitKat, is even less reliable than Windows Fucking Vista! You see, I own a tablet. It’s an Asus Nexus […]

PlayStation Now – Not Cool, Sony!

As some of you are likely well aware, Sony intends to launch their own cloud gaming service this summer. PlayStation Now (previously called Gaikai) will basically let you stream entire PS3 video games to certain Sony devices, such as the Vita and PS3. You’ll require an additional membership to the service, rumored to be $50 […]

As a few of you already know, I’m an avid video gamer. Hell, I even design video games, so you know I’m pretty damn loyal to the video game community. However, as of late, I’ve been finding it harder and harder to convince myself of one simple thing; gaming is fun.   After looking at […]

Happy Halloween!

Ah, Halloween. My favorite holiday of all. Ghosts, zombies, vampires, clawed dream killers. That’s what makes this holiday so absolutely amazing. Oh, and Houdini died on Halloween, which is pretty damn awesome… but in a sad way.   Hope you all enjoy your lumps of candy, and razor-infested apples. I know I sure will!

Well, Ain’t I Festive?

Halloween is just around the corner, so I decided to dress my blog up in one hell of a costume.    Whatcha guys think?

Apparently, I’m an American…

DoRoyal, Sidular and this here blog were all hacked by some psychopath cyber terrorist out in the middle east, all because they thought I was an American.   Well, EAT IT YOU FILTHY HACKER!!  I’m NOT an American, you dumbass. I’m 99% Canadian.   Anyways, things are starting to normalize now.

Prediction: New Nintendo Handheld in 2016

Let me start this off by saying that everything mentioned is entirely unofficial, and based solely on my own semi-professional opinions.   I expect for Nintendo to launch a brand new handheld video game platform, one that combines tablet-like functionality with augmented reality gameplay, and possibly even a form of 3D technology that integrates with […]

Log Entry #019 Date – April 30th 2031 Time – 9:45 AM Just fed Cheesy some pebble things. They had weird colors, and floated at the top of the bowl, so Cheesy had to swim up to eat. You’d think fish food would sink, not float. Guess common sense doesn’t apply to them fish professionals?

Twelve o’Clock

“Where did… What just happened?”  I looked around to study the room, and to my surprise, I was sitting at my desk in Ms. Applebees classroom. The room was dark, except for a fine streak of moonlight that shone in through the windows.  Scared, I stumbled out of my desk and across the room to […]

Rockstar needs to fire their PR department.

Alright, don’t hate me just yet. I love Sony, and I absolutely love the PlayStation game consoles. (own every console) However, I seriously regret my digital purchase of Grand Theft Auto: V on the PlayStation Store. I thought that there would be the option to preload the game onto my console before the release date. […]

Human Medium: Birthday Wishes

My name was Carl, I was 14 years old, and I had the ability to communicate with earth-bound spirits. Then I died. A while before my death, I began to notice that the spirits were getting darker. Their transparent bodies masked a strange shadowy haze. Roughly one month after the spirits began to darken, they […]

The Clock

Looking up at the ceiling, Katie couldn’t help but wonder how her life would turn out. She’s always been a visionary, which is a trait she got from her father. Would she become a lawyer and work for the government? Perhaps a doctor, or possibly a police officer?  A voice interrupted Katie’s daydream, and she […]

Floppy Drive – Sexually Transmitted Data

Hello, I’m a Mac, and a few years ago I had intercourse with a Windows PC.  Here’s my story.  -517 Days Ago via iCal- As she opened up her large and outdated floppy drive for easy insertion, I hesitated for a moment. Was I really about to insert my disk into her ancient technology? What […]

Family Business – Chapter 0

Standing over the body of my lifeless father, who was murdered in cold blood by the hands of the devil, reincarnated into an otherwise innocent soul. Dead, yet a walking tank of supernatural capabilities. A weapon that not even I was able to foresee, before actually witnessing this atrocity myself. If not for my slow […]

The Story Of Nikola Tesla – Vrykolaka

A bolt of electricity surged through my body, immediately followed by the unearthly crackling of thunder filling the air above. I had just been struck by a bolt of lightning, and survived. Well, that isn’t entirely accurate, as I was never quite alive to begin with, so survival from such a voltage was to be […]

Nightmare of Reality

I feel as though I must apologize for my unusually idiotic behavior. You see, I am but a lonely human living within an occupied world, forever destined to idly sit by the metaphorical curb of life. In reality, I feel like a complete stranger. I keep asking my nearly unrecognizable reflection to leave the mirror […]

Hello, I’m Seriously Sarcastic! (nonsense)

Currently, my personality consists of two general modes; sarcasm and serious. Sadly, most of my fellow peers from the digital web constantly find themselves unable to differentiate which ‘mode’ I am writing in, as they’re too damn stupid to figure it all out. (<– was sarcasm) Seriously though? This whole “is he sane or is […]

Hey everyone, it’s me again, reporting in from my luxurious apartment in a small town that no one has heard of. As some of you already know, I’m the lead man behind the Gaming Rant service, and have been funding various video game giveaways since I started it up in 2010. Now that I’ve got […]

I am currently in my warm, soft and cosy bed, typing this entry on my Asus Nexus 7 while occasionally taking a quick glance up towards the ceiling, hoping that the fly that stalks me remains in a viewable position, while I casually plan an elaborate murder scenario for our bug-eyed friend. Yes, it is […]

A Twisted Poem Without The Rhymes

This is no life, this isn’t living. There is nothing here for me. They say I have a purpose. A higher power. A meaning. They say a lot of things. I have yet to fully understand what I am, or what I am capable of. I know my calling, but cannot hear or understand the […]

I Gotta Step It Up

This blog isn’t exactly the most popular of places, which honestly annoys me to no end. Back when I wrote for a website called Gaming Rant, it was usual for my articles to be seen by thousands of people, with some receiving over one hundred thousand total views. I guess I’ve come to expect the […]

Hello there, fellow idiots! Long time no see! Today, I feel like expressing my inner hatred for a certain video game, all the while telling you how much I absolutely adore this very same game. You see, me and TF2 go back to well before games even existed. I was just a guppy swimming through […]

My Quest To Become A YouTube Star…. again

As most of you don’t already know, I used to be a fairly big star back when I used YouTube regularly.

Piss Off With The ONE Hate!

Sure, the Xbox One wasn’t what you had expected. Hell, for most of us, it was the complete opposite. Now, I’ve never been the biggest of Xbox fans, and tend to hate on things that break down, or have games that I dislike. However, back when Microsoft first announced the Xbox One, I was actually […]

Blogging To An Empty Crowd

I just wanted to state that, although I myself am operating my own super underpopulated blog, blogging itself, and the act of blogging, is a greatly outdated, underloved, underappreciated uber colossal waste of time. Matched only by Twitter with useless posts and idiotic rants, blogging (and possibly Twitter) should be removed from the internet, banned from […]

The True Story Of Hammy the Magical Hamster

Ever wondered why I always reference magical hamsters on this here blog? You probably thought it was to increase my views, or something. (I ain’t got no views) A couple of years ago, I had a hamster that was capable of escaping and surviving within my cat-infested house for days on end. He was, quite simply, […]

I See Dead People, or more specifically, the Late Ryan Davis

Giant Bomb is no longer as giant without the great late Ryan Davis.   Truly will miss this blubbering sack of on-air sarcasm and love. It’s been a pleasure reading and listening to his voice of gaming wisdom, and I personally will cry like a baby on steroids tonight.  (and i don’t even know what a […]

If This Gets Onto Reddit, I’ll Eat A Turtle… not a real turtle, as that’d just be totally sick and probably unhealthy. Instead, I’ll eat me the best chocolate turtle treat I can find, and then paint my house (even though I don’t own a house) purple, just because I can, but mostly because it won’t be my house, but someone elses, as I kind of don’t own a house. Not allowed to paint the apartment, as that could get me evicted.. besides, what kind of color is “purple” anyways? I mean, it looks cool… IF YOUR EMO! (which I am)

My integrity as a blogger (or whatever it is I’m doing) is about to be thrown out of a giant nonexistent yet equally metaphorical window. The darkness has taken me for a twisted joyride, and I find myself unable to properly recover. So, I regret to announce my imaginary resign from this nightmarish world. To unofficially […]

Due to popular demand, the almighty Ty returns from his nonexistent grave to write yet another completely pointless blog post about how the almighty Ty returned from his nonexistent grave.   Now, off to finish my show on Netflix.

I Killed My Mind

There’s nothing more pleasant than finding out that your wonderfully shiny and super expensive video game console is nothing more than a ploy to control your every action.   Thanks violence in games, you’ve made a murderer out of me!  

The Insane Fear Sanity – Part 1

I grew up at a mental institution just outside of a small Canadian town called Picton. The doctors called me subject 9, or S9 for short. So, that is who I am. S9.  The story you are about to read was written by me, S9. Therefore, if you find the content inside of the story […]

Both myself, Alicia, and my brother, Jordan, were raped, tortured and murdered at the young age of 12.  Before our lives came to a violent end, we were both suffering from what Jordan called ‘anti-school syndrome’ (A.S.S). We made it our tradition to skip classes together, and hike to the abandoned train station at the […]

Do you believe in ghosts? Yeah, neither do I. However, being as how I am dead, you’d think I of all people would believe. Sure, I am technically dead, in the sense that my body is now a rotting corpse buried somewhere below the Empire State Building, I feel as if I am very much […]

To become truly innocent and pure, you must once again peek through the eyes of a child, for the youth of this world are the true representations of innocence and purity.   – Ty Harvey  

Quote of the Day

To be capable of living up to your own expectations, you must first learn to expect fewer things.   – Ty Harvey

To properly understand the true fundamentals of life, you must first live till death separates your soul from your rotting corpse, to which you can freely enter an endless afterlife of eternal bliss, mixed with a tablespoon of damnation.   – Ty Harvey

Microsoft’s Practically Selling The Wii U

Introducing the first ever hybrid between a standard blog post, and a relatively accurate news article! Remember the little thing called ‘Xbox One’? Yeah, I’m sure you do. Well, turns out, the press conference that Microsoft held to announce their little shiny DVR actually did something that Microsoft didn’t expect; it helped Nintendo make a […]

Xbox One – Abbreviation – What Do We Call This Thing??

PS is to PlayStation, GB is to GameBoy, but what the hell do we call Microsoft's latest game console?

However, with so many wonderful options available, what in the hell [...]

In light of the recent Xbox One announcement, and with it, the introduction of one of the sexiest controllers ever to be held within the gamers hands, I figured I’d write a post dedicated entirely to the Top  Sexiest Controllers of All Time!

Why Netflix Owns My Soul

Netflix, the video streaming service that has all of the best movies from 10+ years ago, officially owns and controls every part of my body, including the soul itself.

Why The Next PlayStation & Xbox Are Day-1 Buys

I fully intend to buy the next generation of video game consoles the instant they are released onto North American soil. But, why would I go out and buy two very expensive consoles that will likely be deprived of good games for quite some time to come? Well, the answer to that is simple; because […]

Coke vs Pepsi vs Call Of Duty

Coke is a form of bubbly beverage that people of all ages consume on a daily basis. Coke is also one of the most addictive substances on this planet, same goes for Pepsi. The addictive nature of the two largest and most widely consumed beverages practically guarantees the sale and eventual consumption, and unless the sale of […]

Realism – The Realistic Death Of Games

I am a video gamer, and because of my general stupidity, I’m a damned good gamer, too. However, as a gamer and a game developer, I can’t help but to question the mindless lack of creativity that this industry as a whole is greatly playing without. A single gaming genre rules them all, essentially playing […]
